Associate Editor

Benjamin Tepler edits Portland Monthly’s Eat & Drink section, manages the Eat Beat blog, and writes across various departments, with a peculiar interest in Oregon-based entrepreneurial success stories, like Jacobsen Salt, Steven Smith Tea, and Kinfolk magazine

The New York native and Oberlin College graduate joined Portland Monthly in 2010, equipped with a culinary degree and a failed career in marine biology. To counter-balance his high-caloric diet, Benjamin spends his free time running, hiking, and climbing up Oregon’s various peaks.
